      I really wanted to give this a great review as it has all my favorite ingredients. We found it to be very bland, even after cranking up the amount of spices. If your family has very mild tastes, you might love it.

      I went looking for this recipe after I had a cup at my local whole foods (for $5!!!). I thought this was even tastier, and cheaper! I froze a couple of servings for later. Very good!
